Nic Seton

Staff - Chief Executive Officer

After 15 years of campaign management and senior leadership roles for global and national non-government organisations in Australia and the UK, Nic took a year out to care for his second child. He then joined Australian Parents for Climate Action as its CEO in 2021, determined to facilitate effective public pressure for climate action. Nic brings his experience in delivering award winning public campaigns, rapid strategy development and organisational leadership to support the team at Australian Parents for Climate Action to achieve rapid growth and strategic impact.


"I’m really excited to be taking up the position of new CEO of Australian Parents for Climate Action. I’m based in Sydney. I have two incredible kids and an inspiring partner. And together we have a lot of fun exploring nature and playing together."

"What we do now will decide the scale of the challenge our kids face. We can act now for a safe climate for all families. That’s why I’m passionate about this role. I get to work with a skilled and talented movement of people who are driven by their love for the kids in their lives."

"Our parenting years are busy. We work hard at home and on the job. But they are also the most beautiful moments of our lives. Every action we take as parents creates happier, healthier lives for our children too. So thank you for taking action, working hard and for everything you do to make the climate safer for all. I look forward to working alongside you on our journey to securing a safe climate."

Australian Parents for Climate Action meet and work on the lands of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and respect that sovereignty of those lands was never ceded. We pay respect to Elders, past and present and emerging, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
